Backup and recovery has been made more challenging by the increasingly rigorous guidelines regarding data confidentiality, accessibility and retention governed by Sarbanes-Oxley, FINRA, and HIPAA regulations. Data Storage Corporation, however, understands these challenges, and can ensure that your critical information is secure yet accessible while meeting the latest regulations.
|Manual handling of tape-based backup does not comply with HIPAA and GLBA privacy rules.||Automated backup and recovery remove manual handling from the management process.|
|Moving data off site can be manual and may not be secure.||Encrypted at all times, backup data is sent off site quickly and automatically.|
|Tape backup across locations may prevent a company from quickly providing records to auditors.||Centralized data-protection management allows fast, easy response to inquiries.|
|Long-term storage and archiving||Data Storage Corporation tiered storage.|
Health Care Providers, Payers and Clearinghouses must make every effort to be HIPAA-compliant with regards to the Privacy and Security of Protected Health Information (PHI). Covered Entities must employ safeguards that address the administrative, technical and physical components of privacy. Many of the safeguards will be the same or similar to those that a Covered Entity implements to comply with the privacy standards.
Data Storage Corporation's online backup and recovery solutions rely on encryption that ensures that health care organizations trying to standardize their electronic data interchange and storage will meet or exceed confidentiality and security standards.
Created as a response to scandals at Worldcom and Enron, the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002 legislates how and how long companies can store their financial records. SOX safeguards against illegal financial activities by specifically stating that electronic records and messages, such as email and instant messages, must be saved for at least five years so they can be obtained easily.
Data Storage Corporation's online backup software and managed services help address SOX rules without adding equipment or services such as tape libraries, media and off-site media storage. Our online backup keeps critical data secure, yet quickly accessible. The system securely delivers data to off-site locations, and the data remains encrypted, so there is little to no possibility of unauthorized access or destruction.
FINRA (NASD 3510) requires each registered firm to have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) that is tailored to meet the specific needs according to the regulations the organization needs to meet. The BCP also needs to address on how a registered firm will address a significant business disruption to properly comply with customers requests.
